Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that book bloggers are eagerly anticipating.

This week’s WoW pick is one I’ve seen around the blogger circles all week:

Open Road Summer
Author: Emery Lord (website | twitter)
Publisher: Walker Children’s

Expected publication date: April 15th 2014 

After breaking up with her bad-news boyfriend, Reagan O’Neill is ready to leave her rebellious ways behind. . . and her best friend, country superstar Lilah Montgomery, is nursing a broken heart of her own. Fortunately, Lilah’s 24-city tour is about to kick off, offering a perfect opportunity for a girls-only summer of break-up ballads and healing hearts. But when Matt Finch joins the tour as its opening act, his boy-next-door charm proves difficult for Reagan to resist, despite her vow to live a drama-free existence. This summer, Reagan and Lilah will navigate the ups and downs of fame and friendship as they come to see that giving your heart to the right person is always a risk worth taking. A fresh new voice in contemporary romance, Emery Lord’s gorgeous writing hits all the right notes.

If you follow me on Twitter, you might know that I’m pretty obsessive about the show Nashville. It’s total trashy fun with a great bunch of country music at it’s heart. I’m not really a super-country girl, but this book sounds like Nashville + road trip, which is…perfect. I love summer romances, I love road trip books, I love friendships, and I love music. How could this be bad? 

The only question is…are any of these girls a Juliet?

Lilah sounds like she has the same career, but with a lot less meanness. Maybe she’s more of a Scarlett?

The girls’ friendship sounds a lot like Daphne and Maddie, though, who are my absolute faves on the show.

Can’t wait to find out!

Are you excited for the release of OPEN ROAD SUMMER? Which bit sounds like your favourite part: the music, the friendship, the summer romance, the road trip, or the fact that it sounds like Nashville? Hit the comments and let me know!

  1. Sounds like a nice, fun read. First time I've seen this book and the cover is great. If there's's friendship,music and a road trip, it should be great.
